Cover Reveal!
I’m excited to share the cover design for my new short story, "Bridge of Sighs." What do you think? Click here if you'd like me to notify you when the story is published: http://eepurl.com/cgWdVH

Venice, 1610:
“My uncle the goldsmith died less than an hour ago but the Plague Doctor is already at our door…”

After the bubonic plague takes his parents, ten-year-old Tonino is apprenticed to his uncle in a small goldsmith’s studio perched on a bridge. But as the Black Death reaches its hand into his uncle’s workshop, young Tonino is faced with making a choice to survive.

From the author of THE GONDOLA MAKER and MADE IN VENICE comes a short tale of pestilence, Venetian artisanship, and the will to live.

Outside of my comfort zone: Telling a very personal story without my normal crutch of visuals on the screen. Award-winning storyteller Matthew Dicks is taking notes. My heart is racing! #storytelling #truth
